How does your wing attach?

Select a skeg to learn how to assemble your Dude!

  • Snap

    1. Sometimes we hear the wing on someone’s Surfer Dude was hard to snap on or their Surfer Dudes figure did not snap all the way in. Because no one wants their Surfer Dudes to come apart in the surf, these fittings need to be tight. If you are having problems with these, try one of the helpful hints below:
      • Wing won’t snap on
        Make sure wing opening is centered over skeg attachment point
      • Wing still won’t snap on
        Make sure the arrows on the skeg and wing are pointed in the same direction
      • Wing still won’t snap on
        Place your surfboard upside down on a hard surface like a table; slap the wing onto the skeg with a hard downward motion
      • Wing still won’t snap on
        It takes a quick but firm rap, don’t be afraid to rap it
      • Wing won’t stay on
        Study the opening on the bottom of your skeg; when properly assembled, this opening (visible through your wing slot) must be as fully open as it was before you attached your wing (if the opening is closed or only partially open, it is not secure) 
      • I assembled figure and skeg without surfboard
        Try pulling them apart; it can be done, but takes a lot of strength
      • Figure does not snap all the way in
        Place wing, skeg, and surfboard on a hard surface; press figure down hard, starting with front foot, then back foot, going back and forth between the two until both are fully in
      • Figure still does not snap in
        Don’t be afraid to push still harder on figure
  • Slide
